Jan Brett is an exceptional artist/illustrator, and I love her work here, in combination with Edward Lear's humorous verse. Unlike Ms. Brett, I had never imagined quite where Owl and Pussycat went on their most fortuitous trip. Happily, in this volume she sends them to the colorful Caribbean where growth is lush and the living easy. As in all her creations, Ms. Brett provides images in stunning detail. i was looking for a nicely illustrated version of the poem to read to my baby and this fit perfectly.

Pussy said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl, How charmingly sweet you sing! Oh! let us be married; too long we have tarried, But what shall we do for a ring?"

I love the poem "The Owl and the Pussycat" - so much in fact that my husband is thoroughly sick of it. This book is a fabulous rendition of that poem. The illustrations of Jan Brett are lush, brilliantly colorful and have enough details in them to make this slim book worth reading many times. The Caribbean theme used throughout is a nice, novel idea. It makes me want to visit the land where the bong-tree grows. Recommended, and I don't even have any children!

Our 2 yr. old daughter loves this book. I love to sing it to her. The drawings are unusually good, and have lots and lots of great detail. Our daughter loves to notice how, say, the fish from one panel makes it into the following panels.
